I do know what you mean. When I was losing weight and even today in maintenance I'm painfully aware not to transfer my own concerns to her.
I always talked about healthy lifestyle and making healthy choices rather than getting rid of fat and exercising to burn calories.
There is so much pressure on girls in our society already without me visiting it on her.

As it is I'm noticing that she is getting more concerned about her body image.
I'm doing my best to instil in her a good balanced view.
Talking to her about making healthy choices and not about "good" or "bad" food.
Having the occasional treat but taking responsibility for it by doing some exercise (fun walks, bowling etc) or making a really good healthy food choice later.
And the best way I can help - is modelling the life that I talk...by walking the talk.

With growing up and being high with the numbers on the scales and always getting that look from,well from somebody,i nowe can look back and see in the photos I was a big girl and tall but never so fat that I could or should have felt over weight...we as grown ups take so much of our childhood with us and it gets too the point where sometimes one will say enough,but its easy to say enough is one person able too do it...

Had a hard weekend...

Its terrible out their for young GIRLS and its starting too get like it for boys also..
Social media isn't the greatest thing for society I blame that for a lot of the problems with the young,midle aged and the old..Its not all that its cracked up too be..
The girls feel the need too look sexy at very young ages,the middle aged are out their looking for something new,the new life of so many...Its sad.

Find weekends very hard,week days are sorted out on the week before with whom im meeting up with everyday,i find weekends and home with the family so much harder...
Also weekends I tend too bake more goodies,and im a good baker which makes it so hard all these yummy things at hand..
Weekdays are so much more in control...
Did pretty well with only putting on a small amount now today I must keep too points..

That childhood saying "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never harm me" may be a noble thought but certainly not very true.
It is dreadful how harming unthinking people can be with words about weight.

Guess that is the step back that I was talking about.
Your body is just playing catch up with the weight loss...to be expected really.
You are still ahead of the game - and I believe that 84kg is a very realistic expectation for the week. 8)
You are doing well...bad weekend or not. :D

The weekends tend to get out of routine quicker than week days.
Predictability is the great ally in weight loss.
But life is never predictable; it always contains surprises.
That is why we have to keep working on our skills and develop our experience so that when we are hit with sudden surprises we know how to deal with them. If you look back on your own journey you will see just how far you've come in this aspect of your life.
You have developed a range of skills and gone through many experiences that you can draw on to get through the worst of it. 8)

How do you find your va va voom?...look at an old picture of yourself, then look at yourself in the mirror and repeat the magic words "I'm never going back there again".
I always told myself that failure was not an option which meant to me that stopping wasn't an option.
As I always say..."there are no days off in weight loss (and maintenance if it comes to that)".
It's your life's work and just like any employment you are obligated to front up.
Treat it like you would a job.
Your employer wouldn't be too impressed if you suddenly decided that you didn't want to turn up.
It's your job...and your obligation to do it.
Like all jobs, there are parts of it that don't light your fire and there are days that are better than others but what has to be done must be done no matter how we feel about it.
